[Latin for “here and there, everywhere, it does not shine (being darkened by shade)”]

 

 

Lead the parade

for all to see,

but don’t expose

me in a tree…

a tree without

the growth of life,

a tree left brittle-

revolutionary strife.

Lives get in the way,

no Che Guevara…

nothing there like

no Pablo Neruda,

the finger pointed

to the distant past

but to affect present

and future contrast.

 

 

You must come face to face with who you are… to understand why you’re here and what you are to learn- God is in control. Who do you trust, God or man?

 

How does one justify “Experimental psychology” being foisted on the US political stage, as the one woman show (began) will be remembered- the name of Christine Blasey Ford. If allegations (claims or assertions) are all that is needed to stop or impede the progress of anyone, the pointed finger of kangaroo-courts, then don’t be surprised when the information provided turns out to be less than truthful and the reaction you had will be the same one you’ll face. Shame “Social psychology” wasn’t considered at all. 

 

Social psychology: the scientific study of how people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others.

 

[The abstract below can be found here, Section 4.1 Ockham’s Razor, and through the SEP (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.]

 

Nevertheless, we do sometimes have sufficient methodological grounds for positively affirming the existence of certain things. Ockham acknowledges three sources for such grounds (three sources of positive knowledge). As he says in Sent. I, dist. 30, q. 1: “For nothing ought to be posited without a reason given, unless it is self-evident (literally, known through itself) or known by experience or proved by the authority of Sacred Scripture.”

 

To take the liberty you enjoy and seek to remove another’s right to do the same as you- just wrong! You cannot read pigeon droppings on sunglasses as one might read tea leaves- this is the time to stand up for what you believe but not using: lies, deception or false claims to justify your actions stemming from political bias or stigma. Tie in psychology, a nationally recognized science, and this is called logical in nature or is it too experimental?

You will live in a day when people

will parade about in their pride…

let it not be hidden, what they

favor, or justice will be denied,

 

think not then on this a liberty

when stuffed down our throat,

it would be sure exercise of

folly to take a peaceful coat,

 

nor will racism fanned by hot-

test forge, furnace of blame,

conviction is not changing but

adds tenderness to our shame,

 

You’ll hear,”If it’s not about me

it won’t matter”, never has been…

it has not been about the world at

all, still others waiting for when

 

our populace has been stripped,

emasculated, of what is natural…

the desire to defend ourselves or

to be men- historically unilateral,

 

once removed from ourselves we

would be no sooner a spot… subject,

and subjected to fleshly desires as

care or concern is offered its object,

 

the best condition for us to be in,

when you consider the US divided,

one thinks nothing about “a libertine

mind” or the folly as one is guided!

 

When one considers life meaningless, it matters little how one chooses to live it, right? This is the only conclusion I can draw from all this, being an effect of removing God from public schools and “higher learning” in general, as is pointed out in the body of work above. I’ve seen ignorant people with more “smarts” than some who profess to be educated but remain unlearned, uncaring and extend no assistance- unless it is a convoluted offer to deprive us of who we are and what we have. All this would be faux naifakin to looking at issues within our country as if one is a foreigner.

When you think of: suicide rates being higher than normal, one of the causes to gender and alternative lifestyle is found to have no scientific basis… more “a Psychological suggestion” of approval or what it might mean to the US if we have to “man-up” and fight against any seeking to deprive us of our individual choice [removal of our free will] or our ability to speak from our beliefs. How weak have we allowed ourselves to become?

 

[Below is an abstract from the second link above or this article.]

 

Warren Throckmorton, a psychology professor of Grove City College in Pennsylvania, said his interest in the field grew from his realization that “change therapy” — to alter people’s sexual orientation — has no scientific basis.

 

Need we but look around to the harms done this nation, our people or what is aiding our downfall?

 

If there is someone you do not like or care for, or one that believes differently than you do- pray for them!

No ICE or just steamed over this nation’s sovereignty?

It is the same banter,

the canter of a dead horse…

and whining to outcome,

 

when you can just take

the life without respect to

a country’s laws, so dumb,

 

try that in any other…

my Brother, my Sister and

find peace to be gladsome,

 

the enemy supposes to 

offer you a glittered utopia

but pyrite… cost to loathsome,

 

the ideals of our Founding

now hang in the balance…

end rush seen as their endgame.

 

The complaint in the West has essentially become the same as we see predominately in, around and about Israel. This is the “progressive” thought… associated to and from Communist thought- Marxism to be precise!

 

When “Progressive is to Maplethorpe” what “Whipped cream is to strawberry shortcake”… we should re-think why and what it portends/means to be “Progressive”, shouldn’t we?

 

The quote above is meant to be one which questions what we believe to be truthful… or not! How about you, what do you believe? The line below comes from the link above. It is for this reason I’m thankful Hillary did not get the presidency… more of the same policies practiced by Obama- to lead us closer to our demise as a country.

 

During the 1990s, the DSA gave the Clinton administration an overall rating of C-, “less than satisfactory”.

 

I’d guess today the Clintons would score higher… being that Hillary aided a sitting President (Obama) to help pass (aided and abetted) UN Resolution 16/18 (an international political cause), and the DSA calls the actions of Israel comparable to apartheid. Look below for the latest example (first… and through this link). Here is an Editorial/Opinion from Jerusalem addressing the issue (clearly) or this one. Since it is gaining in popularity, to use articles from the Guardian (a UK publication), let’s also provide the flip-side of the coin (the US edition) in this debacle. Also, if the UK is going to be thought of as a favorable source to turn one’s head… then I’ll give you two more quotes to settle down with and digest them thoroughly- found with Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill.

 

When you can speak for one group and end up causing deleterious effects on others (any others) is when the words will be used to: denigrate Jews, stand against Israel and oppose the living God. How much chance do you give this or would you see to it as being beneficial?

 

Let’s rob from the rich… and keep it!

 

On talking with God Part I

1 Comment

 

Have you need to doubt… found you

where you’ll worry more than faith

can carry you… find the time to pray,

my knowledge turns to sin if I ever

think my self sufficiency is always

enough… this the failure to take away,

preoccupied with things this life has

instead of the needs of others, as they 

do… the Spirit helps us and does say,

find Jesus is always there… to aid us in

prayer, teach us to talk to you Dear LORD,

from the heart and lead us as you may,

open up to all the troubles we will face,

know we can’t do it without the Spirit

involved… ask Him to cause and sway,

find the peace of renewed commitment and

openness with God you were meant to have…

it has been available to you each new day.

 

 

To God give the glory and honor first, for He desires us to say and feel the truth of it… and God wants to hear it from His own. Then make your petition… to speak of your needs, and make sure to include your confession of anything known to be wrong- to clear the air, your heart and your actions. The fact you could be tempted again means we could all fail (the strength to avoid temptations already comes from God). It is for this very reason we must find the courage to forgive those that might have wronged you (perceived or not) and love, God’s love, is more than sufficient for us to share with everyone- can we not get more?

Just remember how it is… and will continue to be in Iran, as hardliners gain in the power they have, and women dancing in public (even at eight years old) is considered an “immoral” act. Below is a very brief abstract from the link above.

 

In Iran, sharia law dictates that grown women – an age that is set at nine years old – are forbidden to dance in front of anyone but their husbands.

 

According to the UN, only 5 percent of cases involving violence against women actually go to court. See here an article on what is being called “Women’s Rights” or “Domestic Violence” and not “Human Rights” or something more appropriate and less biased to begin with.

 

This is a new high in how low, depravity, we have fallen already. Remember this? Thanks for supporting the human struggle to exist at all!

 

Planned Parenthood calls a human baby a fetus (to be soon aborted/snuffed) or just to be tissue and sounds so de-humanizing. What about the “human Rights” of the unborn… or soon to be born [the Jewish understanding is “Human life” under construction]? So, you can clearly see if life is valued: children would be cherished and not treated as property, defended and not exploited, and lastly… beheld as the blessing they are- gifts of God.

 

So easily exploited are children… without normal protections in place. Then again, it does come down to what is understood as normal here!

 

 

slavery is still alive… and we just had Juneteenth, supporting the end of slavery in Texas, USA.

 

Without God… you will see more and more questionable activity or actions taken against people for their beliefs. The list of people to be persecuted will continue to grow until everyone is forced to submit, and at that point “free will” becomes a thing of the past. The kingdom of God is not subject to: the dictates or beliefs of man, an expiration date… it will not end, and “LOVE” will last throughout eternity.

 

Imagine looking at nine year olds for marriage… this is not what God calls normal behavior.

 

P.S., As a Christian… I’m to love my enemy also- a very high standard to live with and for! This doesn’t mean I have to like the actions someone takes but I do have to love them. This is what God has told us to do… unless you do not have the same God… the same belief… or look at what love means to a Christian believer. If your God is not the God of love then we should be able to tell the differences; which will stand out and be apart from love… to be (separated) for all eternity. The spirit lives on and you will either be with God (forever) or without Him!

The sky is falling… or is it?

Net neutrality is the new “tar-baby” to kick at but it comes down to: how it is perceived, what each individual is advocating and promoting… either for or against, and expectations based on beliefs or experiences of the past. It would be a pretty broad brush to paint one into a corner over if net neutrality is not maintained, and when any change would be seen as something unwelcome or not desired. What I don’t understand is how one party can be for freedom of speech but not be bothered unless it becomes bothersome to its: perspective, ideology and overt manner (the squeaky wheel or noisiest child syndrome). What main-stream liberals (I use the term loosely) need to realize is what they offer with their support and voice to… for a cause that would deny them the right to speak out! Imagine that!

Is this “old hat” or just the same old “duck and dodge” of the past… and seen here?

Even “Wired” did a piece on it back in 2012 and an old one for me too.

The image came from this article here (Fortune.com)… seen below.

 

WASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 04: A sign that reads “Protect Net Neutrality& Reclassify Title II is on display during a news conference on Capitol Hill, February 4. 2015 in Washington, DC. Senate Democrats are calling on the Federal Communications Commission to reclassify the transmission component of broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. to prevent broadband providers from creating Internet fast lanes for those who can pay and enforce open internet protections.

What we really got… a little common sense will go a long way, won’t it?

 

Net neutrality breakdown

Still think neutrality is like transparency too, right?

Schizophrenia was not the intended goal,

the traits of it so unbecoming of any party

if they are all that remain, a residual, when:

whining is preferable or even flaunted hardy,

notion to presuppose tea leaves can and

will indeed tell us the future… efforts dodgy

and so Clinton, where expectation and a given

reality shred, the chasm of morals too stodgy,

as even with DACA when the desired look

was the appearance of concern, conditional

to support given as the rubber yields to the

Street and no skid-marks to change volitional,

the rebellious nature speaks more to ego than

not and to less safety or freedom than we had…

to a space of time nearer the conclusion of the 

mundane or glory of eternity to be thought bad,

this gains us the ground on which to fly the

banners of belief, the childish tantrums to much…

to much to bear and witness, either true of the 

character or no where close to being a mensch.

 

 

schizophrenia… a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

(in general use) a mentality or approach characterized by inconsistent or contradictory elements.

[Definition above comes from the Apple Dictionary]

 

Ever heard of… The conceptual constraint? 

[The abstract below is found at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, the link here and under #2.]

But the conceptual constraint does not depend upon adopting any particular theory of content. Its plausibility stems, rather, from the conjunction of two thoughts.

  1. In specifying what a thinker believes, what a perceiver perceives or what a speaker is saying by uttering a certain sentence in a particular context one has to be as faithful as possible to how that thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world.
  1. How a thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world in having beliefs about it, perceiving it or speaking about it is a function of the concepts he possesses.

When thought, emotion or behavior of mankind are left in tatters, and no relationship exists between them to perceive, but the psychology of their actions is politicized or considered worthy of worship- is when society will lose its perspectival on the meaning of personal choice or to gauge actions of God or of man himself.

This is not the time to be double-minded… split-minded or found wrong- in light of what God has told us in “The Word of God”- God will even save you from yourself. If the reflection in the mirror becomes the only object you choose to satisfy, thus distorting the phenomenon, you have already lost the viewpoint of God being first in everything you’d do.

Here is another public viewpoint on Conceptual constraints, by David Moshman, University of Nebraska- Lincoln, December 2001,”Conceptual constraints on thinking about genocide”.

 

Romans 1:16 KJV

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

 

Nothing can be stranger than fiction but the truth!

Yes… Vets have feelings too and often beliefs which run deep!

 

When Veterans come out to protest what President Trump said, on Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018… and, rest assured, some will find anything he does worth a protest. Yes, He is full of his accomplishments but I’ve seen him do more to turn this country back around from the way things were done before him. For this… and this Veteran’s heart, my hat goes off to him and all he would like to do to recoup American losses- even the recent atrocities of the last ten years.

Would you want to deprive American families of our legacy… Memorials shut down in DC.

Allies denied our support… just waiting for an American President to side with Israel again.

The Russian-Collusion thing, as the Russian lawyer was allowed in by Loretta Lynches DOJ VISA… and the small players gained ground and flung it.

 

If anything we should honor, respect and acknowledge those that went before us- so we can enjoy the freedom we have in a manner we choose.

 

I’m sure many of these same Vets take as much offense to: a removal of the final words of the oath of fidelity ( “… so help me God”) by the Air Force, an about face… is to place a question on a historic US military practice observed and acted on for many years or to a sentiment only those in the military might fully understand… about being a traitor to what we should stand for, as in the case of Jane Fonda. Jane went Communist, and I look upon the American landscape (today) to see the growing pains of an old enemy resurfacing, don’t you?

 

Another traitor is in the picture… you come to your own conclusion!
